The question is this, "out of all the support, even the unconventional onces that you very rarely see, what is the support which can carry the most and allow you to gain elo?" What are your experiences and how do you do your runes/masteries and items on them? My brother L O V E S the support LB. I really enjoy support but i also want to have a large impact on how the game plays out in all the stages. If i am thinking about this all wrong please let me know but i really wanna support and gain elo while doing it. Any info is greatly appreciated even if its just your opinion. Thank-you very much for your help in advance!

Imo Taric is probably the safest.
If your carry is decent at all you can get him fed.

Leona is good too.

If you and your carry are good, many can accomplish that. However, to carry yourself through lower elo, Taric, Blitzcrank and Leona are usually the best

If by carry you mean, you do all the work and win, then none. Supports cannot carry a game by themselves, since they're not meant to be damage dealers. Even if you're doing really well, if your teammates are not, then you're still screwed.

If you want to have a big impact throughout all phases of the game, then I can say Blitzcrank (Dat grab) and Sona (Dat passive and dat ult) are good choices. I cannot say anything about Taric since I've never played him before.
Many thanks to Xiao, jhoijhoi, TinyStar, Tsuki, and WOMBO for the sigs!

Depends on elo range, but past 1450 or so it's possible. Supports carry laning phase. If your AD gets their lategame 15 minutes in, it's GG regardless of how bad your mid was (unless, of course, your mid was just as bad as their AD, in which case it's a bit of a toss up).

Point being, when Sivir has her IE and BT when their mid lane finishes Abyssal, there's no contest. She's going to snowball her team.

One can't really overstate how useful is Taric in solo queue. Sure, it is nice to have good coordination with your lane partner in the early game, but one can just try to zone out the enemy and let your carry farm his face off. Later on, your teammates just need to stand near you to be supported. I rune him very aggressive: ArP marks, flat mana regen seals, Mres per level glyhs, and AP/MS quints. Hell, I made a guide about him, check my signature.

If you want something a bit more passive, take Soraka. She's pretty much a heal bot, and your carry just needs to stand back and farm. Later on, you can get assists from the other side of the map with Wish, and your teamfight presence boils down to spamming Starcall, healing the guys who get focused, and silencing the AP carries before they can start bursting everone down. I grab armor marks, armor seals, cooldown reduction glyphs and gold quints. Well, I would, if I played her often enough.

On both, I get 0/9/21 masteries, but feel free to swap out Veteran's Scars for Summoner's Wrath , or, hell, just plain go 9/0/21 on Taric if you like Exhaust. Items heavily depend on the circumstance, but I tend to start Faerie Charm + some combination of wards and potions.

Did I help you? Do you feel nice today? Take a look at my guide,I would really appreciate it.

Maokai and Zilean. I cant tell you how many times I have tree carried from support, or been something like 9/2/7 by 20 minutes with Zilean. Its hilarious. BUT, it is my personal opinion that the "traditional" supports (such as Taric, Soraka, Sona, and Alistar) are incapable of carrying you through ELO, because those characters are totally dependent upon your ADC being decent and not a ******. However more aggressive supports like Maokai, Zilean, and Nunu almost can disregard the skill of the ADC as long as the jungler is good. If the ADC is good as well as the jungler, you're going to have a great time.
Hey, if you liked any advice i gave, be sure to +rep me! Oh, and check out my Shaco and Maokail lorecraft in my Blog! I'm a starving artist in need of attention, so please feel free to read, respond, and critique me! Please? Anybody that leaves a comment (good or bad) will receive a +rep!

If leona is in there, would amumu be worth of a decent sup that can carry?
